Recent research on the effect of implicit bias in our schools has uncovered major and long-lasting outcomes for children and youth.

What is the latest thinking from researchers and experts? What are the most innovative strategies nationally and locally seeking to counter the effects of implicit bias in our education system?

At the Chicago Equity Forum on Implicit Bias in Schools, researcher and author Gina Gullo will keynote a discussion from her forthcoming book, Implicit Bias in Schools: A Practitioner’s Guide, co-authored with Cheryl Staats and Kelly Capatosto. Grounded in the latest research on bias and inequity in schools, Ms. Gullo and her co-authors seek to bridge the gap between research and practice.

Participants will be invited to explore how implicit bias affects students and what school leaders can do to mitigate the negative outcomes of bias in the areas of discipline, instruction, academic achievement, mindfulness, data collection, and culturally relevant practices. Breakout sessions will offer participants the opportunity to learn more about local efforts to combat implicit bias and racial inequity in Chicagoland.
